Remember back in April, when I took photos outside the old school here? I wrote about it in this post. Well, Saturday they were celebrating 25 years of the museum, so it was actually open. It’s only open a few days a year, so I walked over to see what was inside.
The building is not huge, but they did a nice job of gathering old things and making displays. Since it is an old school house, they utilized the rooms and have a different theme for each space.
This is a sitting room. Such great old furnishings, including this beautiful piano.
I love this old camera, of course.
This dress was so pretty with embroidery. But seriously…I don’t think my waist has EVER been that small.
There was a large room set up like an old mercantile. Great stuff in this room. Old bottles, cans, clothing, farm stuff.
I love this thread display cabinet. I would fill the drawers up with beads or treasures.
There is a small library room, filled with old books, and several old typewriters.
My appliances in the RV may not be full size, but still seemed bigger than these. Back in the day, they probably picked food fresh or went to the market more often.
Some little boy wore these right out. More than likely they were worn by several siblings though.
I love looking at stuff from days gone by, and learning a little history is always good too. The museum has done a very nice job preserving some of the local history, and making it available for people to learn more about their area.
You just have to catch them when it’s open.
